HERO MOM by Melinda Hardin, Illustrated by Bryan Langdo

Lexile     Not Rated          Pages     24          Ages     4 - 8
No AR information available at this time.

For years children have had Hero Dads - fathers serving in the military.  In this day and age we are seeing more and more Hero Moms!

"My mom can't transform
  into a machine, but she
  can make airplanes fly,
  trucks run, and tanks roll."

"My mom doesn't lead
  a band of superheroes
  - she leads a battalion."

Langdo's colorful water color illustrations and Hardin's simple prose celebrates the mothers who make the supreme sacrifice of leaving their children to serve our country. Hero Mom will instill a sense of pride in military children and help them explain to their peers what their mothers do. It will also help non-military children understand why some of their friends' moms are away for long periods of time.

I would recommend Hero Mom for any child's library, but especially for children of military moms.

Happy Reading!
